Colonial Revival 1920's largely intact estate down a private drive over its own bridge with a small creek on about three heavily wooded acres. A period showcase with five working fireplaces, detailed original carpentry and plaster moldings, deep window sills, attention to detail and meticulously maintained by the same owners since 1956. Vestibule entry into formal entry hall. A grand ballroom of a living room is located to the right with a fireplace, recessed lighting and high ceilings. A sunroom with fireplace flanks the end of the home--outside of which is an in-ground hot tub. The entry hall has an attached study with pecan walls and built-ins. The dining room has a fireplace, doors that fold into the carpentry, wainscoting and two display cabinets built to match the architecture. A first floor powder room also has a spacious coat closet (as well as a "hidden" one in the vestibule). Through a swinging door is the kitchen with Chambers range top and adjoining large breakfast room which could be opened up to make a modern kitchen to suit the most discerning chef. Behind the kitchen sits a laundry room, a butler's pantry and entry to the 3 car garage. Upstairs, you'll find 4 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and 2 more bedrooms that share a hall bathroom. The front two bedrooms form the owners' suite: it used to be the fashion for each spouse to get their own bedroom and bath and a dressing room lined with closets are part of "her" suite. "Her" bedroom also has a working fireplace. There is central air in this 2 bedroom suite as well as on the first floor. Stairs lead up to a full size attic with cedar closet. Closet space is plentiful throughout, including a butler's linen storage room at the top of the servants' staircase. It is believed that the entire house has oak flooring, as appears in one of the bedrooms. The basement has been fully waterproofed. The entire roof is 3-5 years old. The house has been rewired with an impressive amount of breakers located in the basement. There are two hot water heaters; three zones for air conditioning. Some replacement windows. The yard is currently home to a plethora of in bloom Azaleas, a fountain, stairs leading up to an upper portion of the yard where there is a cooking stove. The built-in hot tub is on the lower portion of the yard. Secluded but conveniently located near Suburban Square, the restaurants in Narberth, Haverford and Ardmore and Whole Foods, Trader Joe's; an easy 20 minute commute from Center City.
